U.S. corporations’ after-tax profits have grown by 171 percent under Obama


quote:

more than under any president since World War II, and are now at their highest level relative to the size of the economy since the government began keeping records in 1947.


Obama is easily the best Republican president we've had in ages.

Unfortunately, the velocity of this money is incredibly low. Companies are not investing it at rates that are historically normal. I wonder why that is.

The growth in profits is due to increased productivity of employees working longer hours juxtaposed with stagnant/decreasing wages for labor.

I'll just wait for the cumulative CEO pay to trickle down.... any. day. now.

I would say the main reason the economy isn't growing is because wages are not growing.

OH I knew what ya were thinking:
quote:

That's what you get after 4 years of atheistic Muslim socialist tyranny! I mean, just think how much better we'd be doing if Obama would just get his communist-fascist boot off the necks of our helpless and beleaguered colleagues in the business community and just let them earn. CANT EARN A DOLLAR WITH OBAMAS KENYAN JACK-BOOT ON MY DAMN THROAT


Eh the fascist comment just told me all I needed to know about what you can and cannot bring to the discussion. Best thing I could think of at the time was to tell you to get back to your apocalyptic reading.

What is that quote?.. I didn't say that.

This is slightly bizarre.

Also, UN Agenda 21 is not apocalyptic reading.. it's a real document put out by the UN.

no

stagnant/decreasing wages for labor

you can largely thank (eta for clarity) technological improvement- automation & disintermediation- for that
quote:

the main reason the economy isn't grown is because wages are not growing

neither theory nor evidence exists that wage growth causally drives econ growth

The gun industries' profits have skyrocketed. So, yes they are included. Telling them to cut down on magazine/clip size is not "Crushing" them.

Corporations use a coercive government to protect their special interests. They exist because of the government. I for one am not thrilled.

Corporations are in many ways the antithesis to free markets. Without governmental protection, these corporations would never be able to grow to the size they are now.

I quoted my interpretation of your thoughts. I'm just joshing with ya, no hard feelings. The Obama is a fascist comment got my creative juices flowing.

Please, go to academy and try to find a 30 rd magazine.

Now go try to find a 7 rd magazine.

Ill give you a hint as to what is sold out and what is not.

Also, an assault rifle ban would literally put some companies out of business.
